No, I don't think so (or at least no way that doesn't involve you
using the name of the template in order to retrieve the name of the

But I'm not sure what you think you'd gain by doing this anyway.
Perhaps you have several templates that generate roughly the same
thing, and you want to put that code in a separate template? If so,
why not do that:

<xsl:template name="createChoose">
  <xsl:param name="translatorName" />
    <xsl:for-each select="$translator[@name = $translatorName]
                            /(* | processing-instruction())">
      <xsl:call-template name="translator" />

[Note that I've swapped the child::node()[name() != ''] for something
that explicitly selects the nodes that have names (i.e. elements and
processing instructions) using XPath 2.0 general steps. I suspect that
you're just after the elements, in which case you could just use
$translator[@name = $translatorName]/*.]

And have the createChoose template called by the various other named

<xsl:template name="click_here">
  <xsl:call-template name="createChoose">
    <xsl:with-param name="translatorName" select="'Click_here'" />
